The Ventura van is a comfortable riding van. I have owned one of the past 3 years and have enjoyed it. Changes to the interior such as reinforced brackets on driver seat controls(electeric front seat) made of plastic, use metal, mine has broken twice. The lever on the driver side seat has stripped and the glove box handle should be made of metal. Blinker bulbs are very hard to change. Standard radio in all vans should be CD player. Next model make the arm rest wider and about 2in higher. Swivel head rest and deeper cushion in seats. Round swivel air vents would be prefered to square flat. Swivel lights in top of van for map reading. Child car seats in all back seats or option upon buying.

We replaced an Olds Bravada with this
Venture, so the bar was set a little
high for features. So far it's a very
comfortable ride, easy to drive, with
one minor problem to date (a left
headlight that holds moisture) that's
being addressed as I write this.
Storage is excellent overall,
especially in the van's rear. I miss
OnStar, but it wasn't available on this
trim level. Mine is the 7-seat version
with leather and captain's chairs.
